|Another shot at the same heron that I posted earlier but with emphasis on the smooth flow of water... I personally like this water and contrast with the green vegetation. Makes me think of tropical countries but don't be fooled, this was taken in Parc de la Visitation in Montreal giving on Rivière-des-Prairies, a "arm" of the St-Lawrence river passing on the north shore of Montreal... This is a wild animal, not in an enclosure, it comes and goes as it wishes.. |
Taken on a cloudy morning, when there was not too many people on the the little bridge over this river.

I know how rare it is to have a heron stand still for 2 seconds. I like the split between the smooth water on the right half and the sharp lines on of the shore, foliage, and heron on the left. Even with a 2 second exposure, it does not appear overexposed. Good choice of shutter speed. The only additional thing that I could ask for is more of a profile shot on the bird, which is something out of your control. Nice time lapse. Did you use a neutral density filter?

Very nice photo!
The water looks so smooth and beautiful, good showing the bird and its living environment.

Belle composition, j'aime beaucoup l'effet de brume dans l'eau avec cette vitesse lente.
Félicitations pour les belles couleurs !

WOW that herron stood still. Well done. It's a very interesting composition with the softness of the water and the sharpness of the herron.
Lucky break to get this shot. Very picturesqye with all the colours and textures. The Heron captured nicely, with exceptional light, very good exposure and DoF. All round, a nice job. Well done. Thanks.

I love this shot Nina and wish it was mine. The setting is stunning and the clarity/sharpnes excellent. No nits from me, just lots of praises.
Very well done and thanks for posting
